Puck Possession has become a predominant topic in hockey due to rule changes that greatly restrict players' ability to slow the game. To succeed, teams must put an emphasis on speeding the play.
Mark Carlson, the USHL's Coach of the Year in 2004-05, shares hockey drills and strategies that enhance speed and put a premium on gaining more puck possessions. Coach Carlson feels that there are three keys to puck possession: positioning, support and work ethic and these keys are prominent in the drills that he presents. Each drill and drill variation is diagrammed on a marker board before an on-ice demonstration. Carlson also shares work ethic intangibles for assisting your team to value puck possession, both individually and as a team.
